Biographical Info

I was born in Paris, and live in Brussels for 20 years.
After working on accessories collections, I began textile jewellery in 2005 with a long necklace made in recycled silk ties. My interest for fabrics, especially printed, guided my work to recycling old ties, laces, dresses or scarves. I like all kind of «fibers», and textures lead me to a shape or a new technique.
I’m autodidact, and I design through «making». My research start by touching, folding, sewing, exploring new methods. Today I develop this research for jewels, adapting the old fashioned pattern of a scarf to a necklace. I recently work with touristic scarves, with figurative scenes; I like these «kitch» designs, mixing them with different geometrics printed silks.
I collect fabrics for several years now, especially silks -more elegant for jewels- and this «textile data bank» became my first inspiration, and give me opportunity to play with contrasting layouts: flowers against stripes, polka-dots with Italian landscape….
Each printed «pastilles» necklace is made in limited edition, or as a unique item.
